Uptown makes another attempt to bring back some pizzazz and glitter to what used to be a great area back in the 90’s.

It’s the Arlington Club, just down the street from Orsay in the old Francois Payard space. Not a bad interior and the crowd was definitely that UES crowd (okay, not everyone can be cool, rich and worldly). The 1920’s inspired pre-opening was something different for the neighborhood.

As taken from the website:

“Chef Tourondel aims to reinvent the steakhouse menu featuring prime beef, fish, salads and sides, as well as complete sushi menu. Signature items include a 28-day, dry-aged Cote de Boeuf for two, Dover Sole “Modern Meuniere” with preserved lemon, capers, fresh herbs, and Papillote of Black Bass with shiitake coconut-lime broth. Tourondel has also created a large selection of creative sushi rolls, including offerings like include Grilled Lobster with avocado, jalapeno, thai basil and honey-citrus; Crispy Kobe Beef & Truffle, with black truffle aioli and scallion; Spicy Tuna Osaka Style, with Kempi-Sriracha and crispy shallots; as well as Crispy Curried Peekytoe Crab, with mango, avocado, mint and curry-lemongrass.”
